Findlay Man Indicted on Five Counts of Bank Robbery

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

TOLEDO - Gage Haws, 28, of Findlay, Ohio was indicted on five counts of Bank Robbery. The indictment alleges that between December 31, 2022, and February 16, 2023, the defendant committed robberies at Premier Bank in Arlington, Ohio, Old Fort Bank in Bettsville, Ohio, First National Bank of Sycamore in McCutchenville, Ohio, Union Bank Company in Kalida, Ohio, and State Bank and Trust Company in Delta, Ohio.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

The investigation preceding the indictment was a collaborative effort conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Findlay Police Department, Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, Kalida Police Department, Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, Delta Police Department, Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office, and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Frank H. Spryszak and Matthew D. Simko.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
